Talking Fussball Extra – German Super Cup Review, Transfers & DFB Pokal Preview

Talking Fussball Extra – The Bundesliga Show is back for the new top-flight German season! Host Archie Rhind-Tutt and Bundesliga Fanatic senior editor Niklas Wildhagen talk about the season curtain raiser – the German Super Cup – and what it might mean for the season ahead. Borussia Dortmund picked up the trophy with a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich. The goal scorers for BVB were Henrikh Mkhitaryarn and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the latter who broke out a Spiderman mask in celebration. The game was a comfortable win for Borussia, but the game threw up more questions for Bayern due to a cruciate ligament injury to Javi Martinez. How will FCB react in defensive areas to this news?

The pair also talk transfers and more specifically about former Arsenal striker Niklas Bendtner who has recently arrived at Wolfsburg.

To finish, Talking Fussball Extra explains the colour and atmosphere of the DFB Pokal (German Cup) 1st Round.
